The Nebraska corn crop is faring far better than some other states including neighboring Iowa with 75 percent of the crop in good or excellent condition. Just 2 percent is rated poor.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture says in its weekly crop report released Monday that Nebraska's corn is 100 percent emerged in line with the normal average.

In Iowa where soggy fields have hampered planting, 12 percent of the crop is in poor condition, worse among the 18 leading corn growing states, 4 percent is very poor and 6 percent hasn't been planted yet.

Nebraska's soybeans are 77 percent good or excellent, 21 percent fair and just 2 percent poor. Ninety percent has emerged, which is near average.
